Healing Your Ailments with a New Bathroom

There could be a variety of reasons to consider a bathroom remodeling project. More often than not, your bathroom is likely to show signs of tear and wear much sooner than in other parts of your home. Frequent exposure to high humidity and high traffic can rapidly deplete a room of the shine and charm it used to have. 

Additionally, if you have bought a house, it makes sense to give the bathroom some much-needed love before moving it. This is the perfect opportunity to create something you will love and that matches your style. After all, old homes can have an outdated décor, which becomes even more apparent in the bathroom!

But there is another important reason to consider remodeling your bathroom, and it’s your health. How can the bathroom improve your health and even cure some ailments? We explain how a new bathroom could be the start of your healing journey. 

Allergens in Your Bathroom

When you think of a bathroom, it’s likely that you don’t immediately think about allergens. However, old bathrooms can contain a wide range of allergens that can lead to an inflammatory response.

Old bathrooms often contain materials and items that can cause an allergic reaction. This includes particles from mold, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and other contaminants that can lead to an inflammatory response. This can result in chronic or acute inflammation, which can have a variety of negative impacts on your health. 

Chronic inflammation has been linked to numerous diseases and conditions, including arthritis, autoimmune diseases, digestive disorders, allergies, asthma, obesity, cancer, and even depression. Acute inflammation can cause flu-like symptoms and exacerbate existing conditions. 

Removing allergens through a bathroom improvement project is essential for reducing inflammation and preventing potential health complications down the line. 

Making Your Bathroom More Accessible

For people with reduced mobility or seniors, having a bathroom that is safe and accessible can mean the difference between maintaining independence and risking injury. Unfortunately, many bathrooms are not designed for individuals who have difficulty getting around. This is why it is so important to consider the installation of a walk-in shower when considering a new bathroom design.

A walk-in wet room can be specifically designed to accommodate those with reduced mobility or seniors without sacrificing style and elegance. This type of bathroom typically includes a no-step shower, a comfort-height toilet, a non-slip floor, and a high sink. It can also include a seated area in the walk-in shower. All of these features work together to make it easier for individuals to use the bathroom without having to worry about tripping over obstacles.

In addition to improved safety, having a walk-in bathroom can also provide peace of mind. This can be especially beneficial for those who may need additional assistance and allows them to maintain their sense of autonomy and independence.

Making your bathroom more accessible with a walk-in design is an excellent way to ensure safety while still providing a comfortable and stylish space that can be enjoyed by everyone. 

Are you looking to upgrade your bathroom with a new style and design? Consider whether your project could also tackle some of your health concerns at the same time. With this knowledge in mind, you can address home improvement projects from both a decorative and healthy perspective!
